Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley: Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour. With Elle Fanning, Bel Powley, Owen Richards, Joanne Froggatt. Life and facts of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, who at 16 met 21 year old poet Percy Shelley, resulting in the writing of Frankenstein.

This is apparently pretty dang close to a true story of her life from my understanding and if that’s the case she lives an exceptionally liberated life filled with freedom and heartbreak. There’s nearly nothing about her most famous story in the film, at least not on the surface. It’s not until the very end of the film when one of the main gentlemen lays it all out that you can see the less obvious parallels of the story in The Modern Prometheus and the elements of her own life.

I’d highly suggest this, particularly if you’re a Elle Fanning fan or a fan of Frankenstein.
